Read the daily quote from Pope Francis

Welcome!

Welcome to Saint Junipero Serra Parish! We are a Catholic Faith Community, located in Quartz Hill (Lancaster), California. Our parish was founded on August 15, 1987 and has grown significantly in these 30 years. Please feel welcome to join us for Mass, especially on the Lord’s Day. Our liturgies are supported by a full spectrum of ministries. We really take seriously the Catholic Church’s insistence that “participation of the faithful is the goal to be considered before all others.” Read More...


Pastor's Corner
July 14, 2019

that will become “traveling statues” to focus prayer for new religious and priestly vocations. We actually had more offers than statues. I would like to start this in August. Families can call the Main Office and calendar their week to host the statue for prayer in their home. The statue will be given towards the end of Mass with a special send-off blessing. It needs to be returned at least fifteen minutes before that same Mass the next week. The family agrees to pray the rosary every day for religious and priests and for new and worthy vocations to each. They might want to invites others to join them for the rosary. 

Since St. Junípero Serra Parish is blessed with ample priests now, we will start helping our neighbors to the north in Rosamond and Mojave with Sunday Masses. Our plan is to begin in August. The Diocese of Fresno is in a tough place vis-à-vis available priests right now. One more example of the need to pray for new vocations! 

Thank you for your generous support of the Mission Cooperative a couple weeks ago. Cash and checks addressed to St. Serra amounted to about $7,000. There were also checks to the Mission Office and some credit card donations. (Fr. Manny might have a future in stand-up comedy, from what I heard.) All the baptized are called to be missionary disciples at least through prayer and financial support. Again, thank you for your generosity! 

Again this summer the DVD series Catholicism by Bishop Barron will be viewed and discussed in Our Lady’s Chapel on Tuesdays at 7:30 PM. It is a very well done and most informative Adult Faith Formation opportunity. Each episode can stand alone so you should feel welcome to come whenever you can and not worry about being “lost” because you missed one week. 

If you have children who need their sacraments, please take the initiative to start the process. For information about Baptism, call me or Fr. Jonathan, for First Holy Communion and Confirmation, call Cassandra. The FINAL opportunity to enroll your child in Faith Formation for the upcoming academic year is 1 August. See the back page of the bulletin for details. Fr. Sylvan continues to be the main contact person for Quinceañeras.


Oppose Bill Targeting "Seal of Confession"

For Catholics, the sanctity of the confessional is unquestionable. It is central to our faith and to our constitutional right to the free expression of religion. As mentioned last week when we read Archbishop’s letter about the Senate Bill threatening the Seal of Confession, our Knights of Columbus Council has undertaken the unfolding of our letter writing campaign to urge this bill’s defeat. 

To facilitate contacting your State Assembly member this link (also repeated below) is set up by the California Catholic Conference to generate a letter to your official identified by your zip code. It is a quick and easy way to contact your State Assembly member!

Sub Tuum Praesidium: “We turn to you for protection, Holy Mother of God. Listen to our prayers and help us in our needs. Save us from every danger, glorious and blessed Virgin.”

The prayer to St. Michael the Archangel: “St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of heavenly hosts, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan, and all evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.”
